end of the world

Postby thedichingang » Fri Aug 14, 2009 7:59 pm

hi balkankiwi and other people of this planet!

i am amused at your choice of 'expert' knowledge vis the extraordinary 'wikpedia'! a font of knowledge well documented in its use of erroneous facts!.

BUT i believe that all avenues should be explored and i have mailed captain picard and kirk to return from retirement for the definative final mission. to stop the destruction of the earth before the politicians complete the task!

i have just lodged a sealed envelope for my breta great....grandchildren with a secret recipe for a nuclear peanut butter tuttle seeking bomb which if slapped against the comet will alter its course and crash into mars rather than earth so saving another emake of war of the worlds.
i know i will not be here in 2126 (even with bulgarian diet etc) but i want to do my bit on saving the planet

must be that time of year again as i saw three shooting stars last night and a red ball that was much lower in the sky. Looked like they came from Turkey towards Greece at a guess so is that to the north? Should be lots more in the next two days so get your glass of wine and sit on the terrace or werever and make a wish when you see one dont they say? Happy gazing :D :) :lol: dylan

Yes, it is the Perseid meteor shower again, peaking tomorrow night, I believe. Last night was really clear here, so should have been a good one for viewing. :lol:

I think the best time is in the wee small hours of the morning, weefrankie - usually when I am asleep! :?

August 12 th till 13th is when you will see the perseids shower apparently it is to be the best display for decades because with the moon being new on the 12th there will be no moonlight to destroy the display. the peak hours will be between 7pm and 6 am gmt.

I woke up at 4.30am, not intentionally I might add, thought I'd have a quick peep, but couldn't see much, mainly due to eyes closing!!!

Is it right that we look to the northeast? Any tips would be appreciated :)
